The Cottage Grove Prospectors and Gold Diggers group was formed in the 1960s to celebrate and recognize the gold mining in nearby Bohemia Mountain.

It was said, in the early 1900s, the streets of Cottage Grove were paved with gold.

The award ceremony took place at 8 a.m. on Jan 14 at the King Estate Winery distribution center in Cottage Grove.

Friends of the Cottage Grove Carousel plan to have the award plaque attached to the carousel.
